Tethered or loose housing for dairy cows?

Tethered or loose housing for dairy cows?

Tierzuchter 32(10): 408-411

Results are given from a survey in Schleswig Holstein of 7485 herds in which cows were tethered and 658 in which they were in loose housing. Between 1974 and 1979 average herd size increased from 24 to 29.7 and average annual milk yield from 4987 to 5298 kg in the former, whereas in the latter increases were from 37.5 to 57.6 and 5181 to 5568 kg. In above-average herds annual milk production increased 48.2% and 82.2% in tethered and loose-housed herds respectively.
